Governing Board Members Qualifications and Training

The professional associations that comprise NCATE appoint representatives to NCATE’s boards who are qualified, by education and experience, in their fields; affiliations and professional qualifications of board members are available to the public upon request, under terms described in NCATE’s policies on dissemination of information. All governing board members are trained by the agency on its standards, policies, and procedures, including the processes for revision and establishment of policies, and the policies for making—as applicable—accreditation and preaccreditation decisions; decisions on state partnership applications; and decisions on applications for the recognition of program standards. Required, formal training for new members on each board takes place on an annual basis, for a half day or a full day before the fall board meetings. Additional training sessions may be held for board members on an as-needed basis.
